British actress Daisy Ridley has found herself becoming one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, thanks to her role as Rey in the new Star Wars movies, with fans around the world loving her on-screen relationship with the wonderful John Boyega, who plays Finn in the new films, so it is going to be interesting to see how these fans respond to the lack of screen time between these two in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
As many of you will no doubt already know, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega did not get to spend much time together on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, since their characters were separated at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, Daisy has been talking about what it was like on the set of the new film, admitting that she did actually struggle to come to terms with the fact that she was not with John this time around.
Ridley shared, "I was nervous going in, because John and I were no longer together, and John is my peanut. So I think more than anything, [I learned] to put your trust in those around you and it'll all turn out pretty well. Putting my trust in Mark and Rian [Johnson, the movie's director] mainly, was wonderful."
She added, "I actually felt more nervous because I didn't know what I was doing the first time around, and you kind of think, how am I supposed to do something again when I didn't know what I did the first time? And I think because people responded so well to John and I together that was a big thing too, thinking how are people going to respond when we're not together. So it was nerve-wracking. But again, as relationships grow and you start to get comfortable, it settles into a wonderful six months."
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit the big screen all around the world this week!
